Using Reason and XITE together is superb workflow wise.  Prior to this schema I was using Cubase, Reason and Scope together so the I/O inside the box using up to 32 ASIO channels was a system drain, even on a quad core i7-4790 with 16GB RAM.

Now the ASIO footprint is reduced to the following:


  1. XITE Analog inputs (vocals, guitars etc) to Reason Input (for recording live sources).

  2. Mastered Mixdown audio from XITE.

  3. John Bowen ProWave Scope Synthesizer.

  4. AES-EBU from Scope PCI Synths.


  1. SSL Master Channel Output.

Both of the Scope synths controlled from reason's External MIDI Instrument Rack device.
